Chanukah Lapbook Close-Up Pictures

Chanukah Lapbook Cover small  In case you’re curious about what’s inside, I finally got finished making a full mock-up of the lapbook.  There’s certainly lots going on in here.  Ignore my creepy plastic tablecloth, please.  :-)

This is just a suggested placement for the lapbook components.  Obviously, you could arrange them any way you like.  Also, they’re not decorated in any way – I would hope that when you’re working on this with your kids, you’ll personalize it as much as possible!

For more information about the Chanukah Lapbook, click here.  To buy it, click the “Buy Printables” button at the top of the page.  Or the words “Buy Printables” in the previous paragraph.

So here’s the lapbook…

Front cover – this is the cover image included in the lapbook PDF, printed on cardstock.  Feel free to substitute anything you want, especially if your child has created it!  You can also add any kind of illustration to the back cover, which I left bare on this mock-up.  Naomi Rivka loves decorating the outside of her lapbooks.

Lift the cover.  (I glue the cover over ONE of the flaps so it overhangs the other flap.  I think this looks nice and neat when it’s closed, but gives a little extra room on the right-hand flap when it’s opened up.  Because it’s printed right on cardstock, it adds durability; if I’m using Naomi’s artwork, I glue it onto cardstock so the cover isn’t all floppy. )

Inner panel (upper side) – this panel is just a sheet of cardstock, creased well along one edge and glued into the lapbook.  This gives me the flexibility to add just a single page without making the lapbook too thick or complicated.

And finally… All the way inside:  (like my OTHER menorah?)

As always, if you have any questions or get stuck assembling the lapbook, please just ask!

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
